Kyle Busch struggled with the handling of his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota for much of the 500 miles in Sunday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup series Advocare 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. But when it counted his team was able to make the right adjustments and after taking the lead off pit road on lap 288 never surrendered the point and won his fourth race of the 2013 season.
For most the night it looked like Joey Logano would steal the show. He made a late race charge but pit road issues, like those that had plagued him all race long, left him in third on the final round of stops and time ran out for him to catch Busch.
Juan Pablo Montoya shot to the lead on the first lap while Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards battled behind him. Polesitter Stenhouse began falling back and was soon outside of the top ten. MORE>>>
